L'Insoumis fragrance notes

Reviews of L'Insoumis

This is very non-enjoyable, and all over the place. The beautiful bottle is done, only in Lalique fashion, they are known for their bottles, and often, unorthodox masculine fragrances. this one just stepped too far out of bounds.

The opening: initially, I notice a green and herbal quality, but it changes significantly and in a hurry, and what i was expecting to be a forest like scent, turns into a sweet, cloying, tropical mess. Yes tropical, despite the notes. This is very coconut and fig heavy to me in the opening, accompanied with a dark feel. It very much reminds me of the masterpiece Paul Smith London, but if you took everything great about that, and made it horrible. For those who never got to try that now rare gem, Ferrari Silver Essence contains this similar vibe. The difference is, Silver Essence sticks the course of its route, while L'insoumis floats off in another direction.

The middle brings in a very common lavender note, it does not match at all with the opening, and it even feels like I am wearing 2 different fragrances at this point, perhaps trying to create my own layering combination, and nothing is matching up. The base becomes a little better binding. The top notes have dissipated, the lavender mid is very light now. The base is strong on the patchouli and fake moss, and there's a little bit of vetiver too. the base notes are almost indistinguishable here. To someone who hasn't smelled them a million times, they would just assume it's just a floral woodsy base, because that's how it pretty much smells.

A mess of an opening, a boring heart, a muddled base. There is nothing enjoyable about this fragrance. Unless you wanna smell like a mess, which, hey, I guess some would consider that artistic. For me, it will be hard to get rid of my bottle, simply because I love Lalique's bottle designs/quality. Though there's no sense in keeping a $30 paperweight around. Hopefully somebody else will enjoy this more than me.

L'Insoumis smells nice at first with a clean, fruity note along the lines of apple but that doesn't last very long, and then it fades into a vague base with notes too soft and blended to really stand out or form any kind of identifiable, distinct personality. I get some lavender and vetiver, and there's definitely a basil aroma, but they're very unimpressive and bland. Though they're not harsh synthetic notes, they are clearly synthetic in a dull, lifeless sort of way. Everything's kind of hazy and gray, and there's no vibrancy to the composition. For this reason, L'Insoumis gets an unenthusiastic thumbs down. It's not terrible, and it doesn't smell BAD, but it's certainly not good; it's boring for sure; and it's kind of a let down from Lalique, whose standard releases have been very solid up until now.

Magnificent! I can not begin to fathom how come that nobody noticed a great connection between L'Insoumis and the discontinued Thierry Mugler B*Men!

Considering the fact that I adore B*Men, I can only adore L'Insoumis as well! It is a strong fragrance, yet not overbearing at the same time.

L'Insoumis is less thick or heavy, maybe a bit more soft than B*Men but not less potent whatsoever. I just can't compare this to Dior Sauvage and as someone said in a review, this is far better than Sauvage anyway.

Scent 10/10 - very subjectively of course
Originality 9/10 - if B*Men was still around I'd say 6/10
Longevity 9/10 - it lasts 10+ hours
Projection 5/10 - not shy at all and yet not overbearing for the first hour, then it fades and becomes very subtle

Based on the raft of positive reviews I blind bought a whole bottle.
I was intrigued by the Encore Noire Sport that is almost a poor mans French Lover by Frederick Malle were it not for the Moth Ball vibe and the Extreme which is not bad at all as a night scent. Great value both of them.
NEVER blind buy based on who's knows what opinions.
It smells of slightly moldy cheaply fragranced tissue paper although surprisingly inoffensive fortunately with poor projection and worse longevity. And its the most expensive.
Straight on eBay for the next sucker. As Socrates says Know thyself but not too much.

Why does the bottle resemble that of Ferragamo Uomo's?

What a wonderful masculine eau.

The opening is unusual (kinda dark wet, dank maybe?) making you wonder, what is the inspiration behind this?
Like a live show about to begin, the lighting is set before the first scene...the lights might not make sense but as soon as the scene begins it all comes together.
So it is with L'Insoumis...the unruly one.

I was transported back to my childhood when the 'show' began. An opoponax like air, strong and firm, like the defiant negative camber stance of a German sport sedan.

I love this.

A must sniff.
